Result of Open Offer

 

On 10 March 2017, the Company published its shareholder circular (the "Circular") in connection with the Capital Raising and the Share Capital Reorganisation.

 

The Open Offer closed for acceptances at 11.00 a.m. on 27 March 2017.

 

The Company is pleased to announce that it has received valid acceptances from Qualifying Shareholders in respect of 9,345,926 Open Offer Shares, including applications for 4,695,440 Open Offer Shares under the Excess Application Facility. This represents approximately 80.76 per cent. of the maximum number of Open Offer Shares available under the Open Offer.

 

Qualifying Shareholders who have validly applied for Open Offer Shares will receive their full Basic Entitlement and any New Ordinary Shares they applied for under the Excess Application Facility.

 

The Company has therefore raised gross proceeds of approximately £0.6 million through the Open Offer. It is expected that the Admission of the 9,345,926 Open Offer Shares will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on 29 March 2017.

 

Open Offer Shares (in uncertificated form) are expected to be credited to CREST accounts on 29 March 2017 and definitive share certificates for the Open Offer Shares (in certificated form) are expected to be despatched to shareholders who hold their Ordinary Shares in certificated form by 14 April 2017.

 

The Capital Raising remains conditional upon, amongst other things, Shareholder approval of the Resolutions at the General Meeting to be held later today and Admission.

 

Commenting on the Open Offer, 7digital's CEO Simon Cole said:

 

"I am delighted with the strength of the support shown by our existing shareholders through the Open Offer. We view this as a vote of confidence in the company and our prospects for 2017. I am pleased to say that 7digital has a strong pipeline of potential business this year and I look forward to updating on our progress and in particular on news regarding the potential acquisition of 24-7 in the near future."

 

Capitalised terms used in this announcement shall have the same meanings given to them in the Circular.
